Now it's all about my birthday. What a great day I had my wonderful sister-in-law, Gillian, had sent me a parcel early and she had included a packet of pancake mix from the Pancake Parlor. We had all gone there together and she wanted to refresh those memories on my birthday, we live so far apart and it was special to have her there on my birthday, even if only in pancakes!!! My lovely daughter made the pancake mix up before bed the night before knowing we would be in a rush before work/school on my actual birthday, and my darling husband cooked them up while we chatted and I opened my gifts and cards.
I wanted to share with you two of the birthday gifts I received from my stamping friends. The first one is from Kasey, my long time friend and upline. She was lucky enough to get to come back to Canberra for a work conference and so we had a catch up earlier in the month. While here she gave me this cute little box and card that she had made just for me. When I opened up the box it was full (and I mean chockers full) of Stampin' Up! ribbons. As I type this I have just moved my ribbon box closer, because I realise I don't use ribbon enough on cards and I do love the wonderful variety of the Stampin' Up! ribbons. I fell in love with Rich Razzleberry when it was released last year, and although I haven't been using it as much of late it remains a firm favourite. Thank you so much Kasey for you warm wishes, lovely gift and continued inspiration.
